  • Yizkor

  • Yizkor is the memorial service honoring the memories of our departed loved ones. It is recited during the prayer services of the four major festivals throughout the year (Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Passover, and Shavuot), and is one of the most meaningful ways we remember our loved ones.

    In addition to asking the Almighty to "remember" the souls of family members and friends who have passed, Yizkor provides us with a vital spiritual connection to them. It transforms their inspiring memory into an active source of light and blessing. For this reason, part of the Yizkor remembrance includes a pledge of tzedakah, charity – a mitzvah done on behalf of their soul, thereby merging our two "worlds."  

    With this in mind, we will once again be publishing a special Yizkor Book of Remembrance for the New Year. In addition to the texts of the prayers for various relationships as well as for the martyrs of recent Jewish history, the booklet will feature the names of the loved ones of our community members. Each name will be included in the booklet for a tzedakah donation of $54.

    Additionally, every name listed in the booklet will be pronounced during the Yizkor service prayers offered in the synagogue each of the four times of the year – regardless of whether the donor is present or not.

    To participate, please fill out the form below with the names you want inscribed in our Book of Remembrance.

    With blessings for a happy, healthy, and sweet New Year to you and yours.


    Rabbi Shlomo Bistritzky
